A 17-year-old was arraigned on charges today in connection with the brutal beating of a motorist who hit a child last week in Detroit.

Bruce Edward Wimbush Jr. of Detroit was arraigned in 36th District Court by Magistrate Millicent Sherman on charges of assault with intent to murder and assault with intent to do great bodily harm in connection with the assault on 54-year-old Steve Utash, who was beaten by a mob of people.

Wimbush appeared via video. He’ll be back in court April 21. He was given a bond of $500,000 cash surety, which his attorney, Randall Upshaw, called excessive.

“It should be considered when an individual has absolutely no criminal contact, he did not use a weapon, he’s not alleged to use a weapon, he’s alleged to have a minor role,” Upshaw said.
